Flower power

Hello lovely people,

Ooooops, I am rather late with this post so I'll get right into it...


Our new challenge at In The Pink is under way and our theme this time is...

FLOWER POWER!
Don't forget we want to see more pink than any other colour!

Our fabulous sponsor this time is Bugaboo Stamps with a prize of 7 digi's of the winner's choice


This circular image drew me straight towards using my fave shaped base to set it off and I like the striking combo of pink and black but with some sparkle to keep it nice and girly!

This pretty silhouette image from Bugaboo would look great just as it comes but I decided to add a little extra pinkness!  I coloured the spheres and added sparkle over the top, and little pink Nuvo drops to the starburst centres.

I have been waiting for just the right project to use this gorgeous sparkly ribbon from The Ribbon Girl and this was definitely the one!

I made the tiny word stickers on my computer :-)

Hi Kat, (I feel so much better that I am not the only one who is late sometimes)!
This card was worth the wait! You have taken a fairly straightforward image and turned it into an absolute beauty! - you are fab! I adore the pink sparkle you have added with the Novo drops and the shape is perfect - a truly gorgeous 'Kat' card with everything perfectly put together and beautifully finished.
